    One thought on “Voice of Innocence”

    1. No matter how loud or how sincere, sometimes The Voice of Innocence is ignored. Brace yourself, your heart and prepare for one of the most powerful tales of young love, loss and its memories as Lindsay Detwiler pens a tale of romance that was doomed from the start.Your first love, those passionate emotions, the connection between the two of you, few people find their forever love the first time they fall, but Emma and Corbin did. She was introverted, serious and he was outgoing and fun-loving, f [...]

    2. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my review in any shape or form.The Voice of Innocence shows the true meaning of “my world turned upside down” literally. It is such a beautiful, heartbreaking and emotional coming of age story. Now if you’re thinking this is your typical young love romance you are WRONG! So wrong, this is anything but typical. This is beautifully written, beautifully executed and overall just a different novel that is meant to stan [...]

    3. My favorite character was Corbin . . . even when he sometimes sounded more like a teenage girl than boy (I'm talking about raging male hormones that fluctuate during this time). He was forced into adulthood early (no spoiler as to why) by three different events that happened in his life. Even with some of the challenge of those events, he grew from them and was grateful - unlike I could say for Emma.There were times where I got a little lost with the back and forth with the memories and felt lik [...]

    4. WOWOh, WOW I'm still trying to grasp the ending to this story and one thing is for sureis CANNOT be the END!! The prologue's first sentence, "You never forget your first love" is a powerful and very true statement! This was such an emotional story about a young love that overcame almost everything thrown at it, only to have their chance at happily ever after torn from them by one of them Yes, I know it sounds crazy but you’ll see when you read!Emma knew, when she heard his name said out loud a [...]

    5. I'll start by saying that this book gave me a plethora of feels. One minute I was giggling and other minute I was trying to stiffle a sob. I adored Lindsay's writing style. Her writing moved me. She'll suddenly throw a sentence heavy with poignance and truth that'll squeeze your heart and bring tears to you eyes.Okay, I am going to be completely honest, I didn't expect this book to be a tearjerker, just didn't (even though the synopsis suggested that). Now when you read the word "tearjerker" you [...]

    6. Voice of Innocence is such a good, good book! I actually couldn't bare to put it down. I just had to know more! It's such a heartbreaking story and I think that's the reason why I've found it so difficult to write this review.Voice of Innocence it told via the point of view of both Emma and Corbin, not only during the present day but also through flashbacks that they both have. This allows us to gain a clear understanding of their thoughts, feelings and struggles. The flashbacks allow us to see [...]

    8. What a crazy heartbreaking love story. I started it one morning thinking I would only read a chapter or two, well it’s now two in the afternoon and I finished the book. I couldn’t put it down. I kept telling myself, oh just one more chapter won’t hurt. I do not think all of my to-do list items will get done today! Whoops! :) I just love the young love aspects of this book.

    9. This book was beautiful. Innocence in the rawest form. It gave me butterflies in my belly. I loved the characters. I loved the way it was written going in between the past and present. I wanted to cry at times. I laughed at Emma's mom You cant resist her. Melancholy washed over me for the second half of the book, and then, hope. Although, some may not like how the story ended, to me, it was bittersweet and if there's hope, I call that a HEA. It was almost like I could hear the man from The Noteb [...]

    10. *Copy provided in exchange for an honest review*This is the first book I have read by Lindsay and I can only give it 2.5 stars. It is told in both Emma's and Corbin's POV, alternating from past and present events. Corbin is the only reason why my rating is so close to 3 stars. This book took me over a month to get through for numerous reasons.One being Emma. Oh my word, I did NOT like her one bit. In the present she is well into her 40's but does she act her age? No. Whenever I got to past event [...]

Life is full of messy, unpredictable circumstances that test not only our characters, but the people around us as well.”I was given an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Corbin and Emma meet on the first day of their sophomore year art class. Emma stumbles with her words and is embarrassingly uncreative, while [...]

    12. What an emotional story! Following Emma and Corbin through memories as they recount the past, the details of the moments that led to the present was such a heart rending journey. I loved Corbin. I found myself looking forward to his chapters, hurting for him, feeling the helplessness, the overwhelming frustration and emptiness that he now lived. Emma and Corbin's love was tested in the most extreme way, it made me question just how much a person can endure and still come out the other side with [...]

    21. *I received this story for review. This review is spoiler free.*I have mixed feelings about this story. Let me start off by saying that I really loved the concept of this story. I thought it was beautifully written. The author's writing style is beautiful and easy to follow. I particularly enjoyed the flashback parts of the story. As far as the characters go, I found it easier to connect with Past Emma than Present Emma. I just could not find depth in Present Emma. Corbin was very well written i [...]

    22. “No matter how far apart we may be, no matter what dreams we may chase after individually, I want you to know that you will always be my first priority. I will always, always love you.”This book, OH MY GOD THIS BOOK! I don't know how to start my review on it!

    23. Voice of Innocence is the debut novel from author, Lindsay Detwiler. She was nice enough to send me an email for an honest review. I love it that authors are doing this! I get to read so many new things and find new authors to follow in the future. As such, here is my review.Voice of Innocence is told in two different point of views and two different time periods.

    27. This was a heartbreaking story but I couldn't stop reading it or thinking about it. It starts with Emma and Corbin meeting in high school. Emma always had her nose in a book and didn't have many friends while Corbin was new in town but more outgoing. They were an unlikely match but clicked and became inseparable. They knew they were meant for each other and planned on spending their lives together. Then the unthinkable happened. Corbin was charged for a murder he didn't commit and sentenced to l [...]

    28. What exactly is a love story if not a sordid saga of tumult, exultation, and longing? In the saccharine-lite "Voice of Innocence" author Lindsay Detwiler chronicles the oft-rugged terrain of first love.The story is one of true love and devotion above all else. However, intertwined with the outpouring of one of life's truest emotions is a story that is at once both modern and timeless.

    29. I was up until the wee hours of the morning reading this one, guys! The Voice of Innocence is this perfect combination of cutesy love story mixed with a horrible, horrible tragedy to create this bitter-sweet feeling throughout. If there hadn't been this underlying "love lost" theme, it could have been really run-of-the-mill YA romance. But, The Voice of Innocence stood out by staying in the present, focusing on 47-year-old Emma, 28 years after the love of her life, Corbin had been wrongfully cha [...]
